Michelia Figo Port Wine Magnolia

Scented flower lovers step up to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over Michelia Figo Port Wine.

This is an evergreen rounded shrub, or small tree if you prune it to shape, with glossy green oval foliage and brownish-purple flowers throughout spring and summer. The pretty flowers are star-shaped with large smooth petals and have the richest, most delicious scent which is said to resemble vintage port or pear drops.

She will thrive in moist but well-drained humus rich soil and prefers a sunny to partly shaded location that’s protected from frost.

You might need to beef up your soil for this beauty because she likes to eat well.

Fill the planting hole with a good quality organic matter, water her frequently and mulch the base every year. You should also think carefully about positioning because she doesn’t like moving once established.

If you have a yearning for more than colour in your outside space pop this gloriously scented evergreen in your border or well-watered containers and she’ll fill you up with the sweet scent of summer.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m a stunning feature plant in the border or in a large well-watered pot. My fragrance is stand-out so plant me near a seating area, window or door.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach 2-3 metres tall and the same in width.

  • Where to place me:  I like full sun and part shade and you must keep me out of frost-pockets or my flowers buds will drop off.

  • How far to space me:  Give me 100cms of room.

  • Soil Conditions: I enjoy rich soils that are kept moist and covered in mulch. 

      Beautifully grown and mature in size with developed roots and guaranteed sun hardened. These plants can be inserted straight into the ground and make an excellent garden plant.
